Thredbo Nominated for Best Ski Resort

August 2, 2021 Accolades No Comments

Thredbo has been nominated for Australia’s best ski resort at the World Ski Awards. Launched in 2013, World Ski Awards aims to drive up standards within the ski industry by rewarding the organisations that are leaders in their field.World Ski Awards was developed in reaction to overwhelming demand from the ski industry for a programme that was fair and transparent with a mission to serve as the definitive benchmark of excellence. It is a global initiative that celebrates excellence in ski tourism and every year attracts votes from hundreds of thousands of travel professionals and skiers across the globe.

Thredbo has taken out the award for Best Ski Resort (Australia) for four consecutive years with last years’ award presented at a prestigious ceremony held at A-ROSA Kitzbuhel, Austria, overlooking the iconic Hahnenkamm.

Thredbo General Manager, Stuart Diver, said of the 2020 accolade, ”We’re proud to be Australia’s Best Ski Resort for four years running and to win this title in a challenging year makes it even more special. We’re grateful for the ongoing support of our community and the many visitors who choose to ski at Thredbo each year.”

Last year, Thredbo launched the Merritts Gondola, Australia’s only alpine gondola after two years of planning. The multi-million-dollar development revolutionised travel on the mountain with the high-speed gondola transporting guests up to the Merritts area in only 6 minutes via comfortable European-style cabins that fit up to 8 people.

To take out the win, Thredbo impressed guests with its wide range of trails for all abilities, world-class ski school and family-friendly dedicated beginners’ area. Boasting the longest run in the country, skiers and snowboarders enjoyed carving turns down the iconic Supertrail as well as access to the highest lifted point in Australia at 2037 metres elevation. For the ultimate bucket list experience adventurers could even tour to the highest summit in the country Mt Kosciuszko on Thredbo’s Backcountry Tours.

Off the mountain, Thredbo entertained guests with weekly fireworks shows and exceptional food and wine at an array of restaurants and bars in the Austrian-inspired alpine village.

New and improved for 2021, Thredbo has launched a number of unique on-mountain experiences, improved online and in-resort guest experiences, supported a stack of Australia’s best snow athletes and achieved Earthcheck Gold Certification leading the way in sustainably.

Improvements have been made to the in-resort guest experience with the introduction of MyThredbo Card Kiosks placed in Thredbo Village and in Jindabyne to allow for 24-7, contactless collection of lift pass cards.

Beyond world-class skiing and snowboarding, a series of new on-mountain experiences were launched which made Thredbo truly one-of-a-kind this winter including Sunrise Sessions, Kareela Snowcat Dinners presented by G.H. Mumm and Merritts Mountain Haus Feast.

Alongside experiences, Thredbo is supporting a stack of Australia’s best snow athletes as they head toward the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics with a fleet of new ambassadors.

Thredbo was the first Australian snow resort to achieve Earthcheck Gold Certification by meeting rigorous environmental standards across ten key performance areas spanning greenhouse gas emissions, energy efficiency, conservation and management, land use planning and management and waste management.
